No really nice swimming area. No grassy area's I recall either. But, when you're looking to camp around Prineville Resevoir, and the state park is full, I would say it's adequate. I like the little store...they have, other than that, not incredibly memorable.
The owners have changed and you can tell. I have never seen someone be so rude to so many people in one weekend, the showers are the worst I have everseen. After years of enjoying this as a camping spot I will never return and will stay at the State Parks on the lake instead.
I have not camped here, but I have a seasonal boat slip here. Have a house on the lake and have used the resort for years. The store is great and they have a resteraunt now on the weekends. Food is not too bad. I never launch or load my boat at their ramp. It's not the greatest and I would not reccomend it. You can use the boat launch at Jasper and drive around. Just around the corner. The owners at the resort are great and very helpful and fair.
The showers have been completely remodeled and just sparkle. The owners are completely accommodating and go out of their way to make your stay pleasant. We have been camping here for years and will continue to enjoy the fishing, weather, people and wildlife. The deer will sometimes eat out of your hand.
Ok now i have 2 boats, 14' aluminum fishing and a 25' sailboat and have tried both there. To start the ramp is gravel and sloped sideways away from the dock so launching is ok if you dont mind the starboard aft side floating first and drifting away in the wind but loading is even more of a challenge. The dock at the ramp is slanted with half on the rocks and its not floating at all. Now it gets better, when you go over to the main resort docks to tie up to the small 2" round rings, the dock is about 2' wide and are held up by two 50 gallon drums inside welded steel frames that love the taste of boat paint. Warning these docks are not stable so when getting out of your boat DO IT SLOW and make sure to use bumpers and tie the bow away from the dock because even with the no wake signs 50 yards out the boats going by will cause wakes that want to put your boat up on the dock. As i said i tried both boats because maybe my 25' was to big for there to launch (i did see 4 other boats the same size tied to the resort docks) so i tried my smaller one with the same outcome. The resort does have the campground,store and lets you park over night if staying on your boat(they dont allow overnighters at the docks) for 5 bucks but if you bring everything you need i would recomend the state park befor the resort. they have 2 easy concrete ramps at the dock and also easy docks for longer stays,camping, and will let you park in the overflow parking overnight for the same price of 5 bucks. I have nothing against the resort at all but am giving my personal review of their docks and ramp. Happy boating
